you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but he is certainly going to win at least one so he is going to get at least the 15 votes. this business that everybody should hang on what happens in ohio is ridiculous. he could lose ohio and carry either
for the president. this poll showing governor romney ahead by three. the governor with 50% of the vote and president obama with 47%. dick morris joins us. good evening, dick. >> good. i heard a great joke yesterday. if obama is reelected imagine the mess he will inherit. >> okay. i'm sure that the obama campaign will like that but the romney cam -- won't like that but the romney camp will enjoy that a bit. looking at the polls tonight, wisconsin in four years ago, president obama stormed the state by 14 points. thth does seem to be a seismic shift in the state. >> there is. wisconsin has become a republican state by virtue of the incredibly intense organizational efforts there of governor scott walker's people, americans for prosperity and various other political groups that have really mobilized the free market forces in the state. they have been through a recall election. a senate recall. a judicial election. and, of course, the original election in 2010 and they won them all and i think wisconsin is going to go for romney. let me put this in a context, greta. i don't think any one has the overvie
the president, 49% governor romney, 44%. the poll surveyed those who will vote on election day. also polled some early voters as well. could the absentee voting situation in the buckeye state, could it change the numbers as we get closer to election day? >> oh, absolutely. at this point we've had close to a million actually cast so far. as i mentioned we have another 800,000 out. and in ohio you can still through next saturday, the saturday before the election ask for an absentee ballot application. so we've got hundreds of thousands of these coming in. and to go back to the points i made at the outset, you add all the categories of uncounted votes together and it could easily flip a 51/49, 52/48 elect the other way. >> barry, you've been covering ohio for some time. now you're more familiar with the situation than just about anyone in the country. give me odds here. give me likelihood. how do you think this thing plays out there? >> well, the polls are so close. we in fact have another one coming out in our own paper tomorrow that shows about as close as you can imagine. each of the polls in th
. and his case with mitt romney. remember the old positions he said. and you go in to vote or in election day. bottom line they think mitt romney flip flopped and reminded he took conservative position and moving back to middle. romney campaign said it is a the president picking on mitt romney in a petty way they say such as the rolling stone. he used the actual profanity to describe mitt romney and here is the president pressed by that from a denver station. take a lock. >> this was a conversation after an interview, a casual interview with a reporter. and the basic point that i have been talking about in the campaign. people know what i mean and they know that i mean what i say and what i care about and who i am fighting for . no further evidence than the fact of the president of the united states coming here to new hampshire a week and half before the election . only four electoral votes. if he thought it was in the bag he wouldn't come here. look at the politics average. in this state the president's average and 48 and mitt romney 47. 1.3 percent separating the men in a state that is
with teem - on team romney hitting po two battle ground state,. 29 of the 279 electoral votes needed to win are up for grabs. the government was in so-called i-4 corridor tampa and orlando that could decide rnor r romney high lightede the importance of early voting that starts today in florida. >> it helps for you to vote now. the earlier you vote the more help you can give us to get people to the polls. we have to get people who care about america to go to the polls and vote this election counts . we'll make it count for america. >> congressman paul ryan is in ohio and no republican ever won the white house without winning ohio. governor romney will join ryan there. team obama pressing on in new hampshire. a state he won in 2008 and he may need to win again and biden in virginia. we'll have more on the obama campaign in a moment. we'll go to carl cameron. you are tramping with the romny campaign and an event thal go live this hour. for now changes in the schedule for the romney because of the super storm. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concent
those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today
romney wins the popular vote, barack obama wins the electoral vote and the presidency, like we had in 2000, and it raises questions going into governing. so i think what you see is the next day, mitch mcconnell and john boehner the republican leaders in the congress, stand up and say we'll speak for the majority of the country and therefore continue to oppose the president's agenda. >> what about you, amie? any words from inside the white house? are they mulling this prospect of the possible electoral vote split and how it might affect governing? >> i don't think they care so much about the national poll. they haven't really even strategists tell me they haven't even really been focused on that. they're focused on the swing states. so i think that when the president does come back, if he does come back, then he will have to say, you know, this is all in the past, let's all try to work together. but i think they're taking the swing state polling very seriously, and not so much on the other. >> yeah. steve, quickly, hurricane sandy. we know it's canceled events in virginia and new ha
january brewer, mitt romney and their tea party friends are trying to steal your vote. wherever you live stolen votes will effect you and almost half of the latino voters in the country. we can stop them. before going to vote on election day, plan on time to vote. second, plan how to edit there. fourth, plan who you will take with you. [ speaking spanish ] we can't let them steal it. >> eliot: arturo, what do you hope to accomplish with this ad? >> we're targeting four states, florida, nevada colorado, and arizona. why arizona, arizona has become a state where you're seeing record-level voter registration levels in the latino community. you can see arpio is vulnerable and you're beginning to see that in a lot of these states colorado nevada and particular particularly arizona for years to come, you see the anti-latino, anti- anti-immigration stance is having an effect. this ad is geared to educate latinos on anti-democratic efforts by republicans g.o.p. tea party afillated groups for ms. informing and basically lying about the election years. in mayor copa county they put out in spanish
to make a difference for president obama. it won't if romney has more votes and wins. it's important to remind the supporters what's at stake and to get them to bank those votes in advance. >> jeff, we are expecting sandy to throw quite the wrench into some campaigning. governor romney shifting his stops tomorrow from virginia to ohio. power outages after the storm could really shift priorities for a lot of swing state voters. how big could the political impact of sandy be? s. >> well, the first thing to think about, since you know i like to do the counterfactual history. what if sandy hit on tuesday november 6th? that would be something that has never happened before, as far as i can tell in american politics. the broader point, if i may, is that the obama campaign, its one advantage even in the midst of the last couple of weeks since the first debate of declining leads is that it's had four years, five, if you count the 2008 campaign, to build a turnout machine. the sophistication of how you locate your voters and how you persuade them to vote has changed by a factor of a million,
. the president and governor romney really, really want your votes in florida. they're among the most sought after in the nation, unless you forget the obama campaign put out a potent reminder. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. so, this year, if you're thinking that your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> oh, yes, the florida recount. that was 12 years ago. when you see the hanging chad and the guy checking the ballots, it all comes back. so are florida's 29 electoral votes. here to talk with me about florida this morning, bernie thompson, host of "the burnerni thompson show" out of florida. who is going to win florida? >> if it were held today, mitt romney would win florida. >> president obama is going to lose it and he won in '08. why do you think he is going to lose it? >> he won the vote from women and independents pretty handily in 2008 and he is neck and neck with women and
headquarters. i'm jane jane. >> governor mitt romney making a last minute push for votes in the building ground state. polls are showing for the race for the white house is tighter than ever. carl cameron is live in florida heading to kissimmee where he is expected at another rally. what is the latest. >> reporter: hi, gregg. one of romney en route to kissimmee for the second event of the day. all the events, mitt romney has not postponed because of hurricane sandy as it bears down on the east coast. there were three plans, they will be moved to later dates and he will join us with paul ryan in ohio tomorrow in order to steer clear of the storm. earlier today he was in the panhandle, up there talking to conservative republicans and n pens colt la, a g.o.p. stronghold. a combination of really trying to organize and rally the base. get them out to vote as well as courting moderate swing voters. to that end, more romney made a deliberate and outward overture seeking bipartisan. watch. >> we've got to do something that doesn't happen very often in washington, that is paul ryan and you are going to
the state if democrats win the early voting battle by a significant margin? >> governor romney really needs to win in the state of florida. the early voting, you characterized that right. it's been a democratic strength. as a matter of fact, in 2008, the obama team had a 10% advantage on early vote nationwide. what we are seeing in these battleground states and across the country in this cycle is that that advantage is still there but much smaller, less than 4% advantage to the democrats so far in early voting. what the republicans are trying to do in key states like florida, especially ohio, is just do everything they can to improve upon their performance four years ago and mccain's performance four years ago. to have a really vigorous get out the vote effort on election day. >> i want to continue this conversation about early voting. let's move to ohio now. "time" magazine found this week that among voters in ohio who have not yet cast ballots, the race is tied 45%-45%. among those who already voted, the president has a 30-point edge. in 2008 about 1/3 of ohio voters cast their ballots ea
of it. even with the best-case scenario of his winning the popular vote, romney has a really good chance of winning the popular vote. i don't think that's anything that we would want for the country. that's a foolish system for that to happen twice. >> one thing to stay, teach israel congressman from new york put in this very interesting motion to add 29 electoral votes to the person who wins the popular vote. i don't know how they came up with the number 29, but it's really interesting because what it would do is it would incentivize people to win the popular vote from los angeles to new york, washington. >> cenk: and if there is anything that i learned both candidates love israel. hopefully not before the election. guys on the idea of obama not having made the case that the next four years are going to be much better, do you agree with that or do you think he has done better than i imagine. >> i definitely agree he has not made the case. he says the same types of things as he said in 2008. i got to focus on the students. i got to focus on women's reproductive rights. those are things t
convince me to vote for him, mitt romney remains silent today about his favorite crazy people. mitt romney hasn't answered a single question about the only senate candidate he has done a campaign ad for. the candidate who said this. >> i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> today a reporter asked romney campaign senior adviser eric fehrnstrom why the campaign has not asked mourdock to pull the television ad. he said that's his decision. today in wisconsin vice president joe biden had to say about mitt romney and paul ryan. >> they can't even get up the gumption to condemn the statements made by two of their candidates in the united states senate. it's not enough to tell me you don't agree. it's not to stand up to say what they said was wrong. simply wrong. >> today mitt romney did not address what his campaign national cochair john sununu said last night about colin powell's endorsement of president obama. >> we have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly differen
votes for victory. mitt romney just wrapped up an event in kiss saw -- kis sigh mee. earlier the day he started in the pan ham of pensacola, florida, a very, very republican part of the state. it was with a crowd of 8,000, 9,000 people in a big school auditorium he actually started courting independent swing voters and moderates taking about bipartisan ship and his pledge to do what he says barack obama failed to do. he was criticizion -- criticizing where he said he would be bipartisan and said that's what mr. obama did not do on obama care and a hoses of other issues. mitt romney offering an olive branch to the swing voters. >> he promised that it would be a post partisan presidency. we watched him over the last four years and he has been decisive and demonized any group that opposed him. he promised to cut the deficit in half. i know he says he wants to do something that helps with the budget, but to balance the budget it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budgets. >> from florida to new evening land, the nation watches as hurricane sandy prepares to bear down and slam into th
, friends, neighbors, those who you know and those you don't know to vote for mitt romney. now finally, before he comes, i said before and i don't claim to know everybody that's president of the united states well or their candidates. but i think as much as i've read about an and mitt romney, let me tell you, they're the sort of moral leaders that this country needs. and i want you to know that i believe in mitt romney. i believe that he can turn this country around and that's what this country needs is more lal leadership as much as economic leadership. but it takes good moral leadership to do the other. so will you give mitt romney a warm iowa welcome on this cold day? [applause] ♪ ♪ >> thank you for being here. [applause] a little windy, it's going to be a great winter. we need some snow, don't we? thank you for that introduction. congressman king i appreciate you being here and the chairman of my campaign brian kennedy thank you for being here. and for all of you braving the little cool and windy today, thank you for being here and bringing me warmth of shir pit. it's good to b
about an election that comes to a state or to. we are likely to see every aspect of the voting in registration system taken on by the parties and put to the end as it was in 2000. >> it is one of several some areas facing president obama and governor mitt romney. >> you could have mitt romney winning the popular vote but losing the electoral votes. >> 270 electoral votes are needed for the presidency. both candidates could fall short. >> if you have the right combination of states brea king, you could have an electoral vote tied. which would be a real mess. >> double the the decision up to congress. >> be pushing to relatively unknown territory -- we would be pushing into relatively unknown territory. >> mitt romney would be favored to win if the house keep the republican majority in the senate and let the vice president and that stays in the hands of democrats, joe biden will probably be their pick. most presidential prognosticators say it is not likely at this point but not totally out of the realm of possibility. >> new york city mayor and john hopkins university graduate mi
again, paul. >> where do you think this race stands right now? is romney surging as much as the polls appear to make it seem? >> yeah. i think romney is ahead in the race in the national race. i think he is within striking distance of the 270 eelectoral votes he needs, and the areas of the country where he made the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with
those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all segments of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rubbed them out. i think
that it was ok for them to vote for a mormon. aside from that, governor romney has not been there. most of the principles have not been here. vice president joe biden has been here several times. this has been a battleground state but it has not been a top tier battleground state. clearly, we have not seen the major candidates here but we have seen a lot of campaigning. we have seen something like $80 million spent here in campaign ads. we have seen as much advertising here as most of the major battleground states. not as much as ohio but almost as much as any other state. you cannot turn your television without seeing a political ad since probably may. we have a tremendous ground operation here. the obama campaign has something like 54 offices here and the republicans have something like 22 offices here. we have a tremendous amount of energy going into the ground operation. there is a tremendous amount of surrogates coming in almost every day like governors and celebrities and other people. there is a tremendous intensity of campaigning here just not the principles. host: you mentioned
be in reverse? they're suggesting president obama could take the electoral vote and mitt romney could get the popular vote. do you see that? is that the feel when you say 2000? >> it is, alex. i think if the election were today, president obama would win the electoral college and mitt romney would win the popular vote. now, a week from now that maybe different. but i think that is the situation now judging from the national and state-wide polls. think of the consequences to that. >> oh, wow. >> i mean, obviously president obama would be the person being sworn in but republicans would also be able to claim that their ideas have wouldn't mandate from voters. and think about the fist cav cliff negotiations that we'd be seeing in november-december. they're going to be difficult in any case. i just can't imagine what impact this would have on those negotiations. >> rachel, expand on that a bit. what happens with the fiscal cliff if this is the scenario that we have here? i mean, who works with whom effectively? and what's the incentive to do so? >> that's right. we've already seen a hyperparti
. this is his first of three campaign events. early voting start sunshine state. romney has a three-point lead. governor romney will speak and we'll bring it to you live right here on fox newings. >> and right now, president is on the way to new hampshire. this campaign event comes after local tv interviews that the president did. and he dodged repeated questions about whether americans under attack in the american consulate were denied help. and we'll have live reports from both of them and joined by dick morris andandy car. we are keeping a watch on hurricane sandy. the storm path is still unknown but sandy is expected to impact the midatlantic and northeast. we have the latest on that. hi, maria. >> good to see you. it is still a hurricane with maximum sustained winds. and it is forecast to make a turn to the midatlantic coast. as we head in monday and tuesday, and so we are expecting landfall in portions of new jersey on monday evening. regardless of a hurricane or not. we know it is it a large storm system with a wind span of thousand mimes and new england coast and douth to the southeast
can safely count on 201 electoral votes. that is unchanged from yesterday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the 15 votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn now tto of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the polls by a significant margin, but four points. yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also needs nevada where president ob
vote. >> this week on "inside washington," the endgame. the last debate. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. attacking >> me is not talking about how we deal with the challenges in the middle east. >> the women's vote and the return of the abortion debate. >> i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the colin powell endorsement. >> i was proud to learn that we have colin powell's support in this campaign. >> you have to wonder if that is based on issues or whether he has a slightly reason for preferring president obama -- a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> we are all most of their pit believe it or not, at the election is now less than two weeks away and both candidates are running as if there is no tomorrow. >> this the first top on our 48- hour flight around campaign marathon extravaganza. we are going to pull an all- nighter. no sleep. >> no question about it, we're seeing more and more disease and, mo
as nate said, it's been even steadier. to freak out about romney getting 50%, even the white vote sort of going away from obama to romney, four states, four or five states, that's really where, you know, all of this matters. it's a little like cable news pundants after debates talking about how people out there in the country are going to see this debate. they have no idea. >> how dare they? >> they're looking at their blackberry which is getting text and e-mails from, who? other consultants from the campaign. it's a weird closed loop that pretends to have a relation to the electorate. >> you said something in the greenroom which hopefully you didn't say to me in confidence. >> if so i'll never be on the show again. >> you said to me in the greenroom, there is a feedback loop. that you as a political reporter, i have had this skpeerps too, showing up to talk to voters. just knocking on the doors. the things you get back from them are them saying what they heard on the news. >> here's the point. we've had the same political story in this country for 12 years. we are an evenly divided co
romney get over the top? he would if he won wisconsin, paul ryan's home state. 10 electoral votes right there. logic being if the president's winning ohio, these are two very similar states. so wisconsin would be one model and let's just say for the sake of argument that one did stay blue, that puts the president right there. governor romney would have to get there by winning in nevada, not enough, and new hampshire. so you see governor romney would essentially almost have to run the board without ohio. the president has more options if he loses ohio, because he starts closer to 270. so is it impossible for governor romney to win without this one? no. but is it improbable, yes. anderson? >> that's why they're sfeng pen so much time in ohio. let's take a view right now from the ground level. jim acosta is with the romney campaign in north canton, ohio. brian brianna keilar is at the white house. is the romney campaign showing any signs of concern over their ability to win ohio? >> i just talked to a senior romney advisor who said no, they are going to win ohio, but he did say this race i
voting against barack obama and for mitt romney which is what romney's going to do for the next four years to grow the economy. there's nothing fundamental has changed. this economy is the worst ever, energy prices are not down and people are living the same life they lived four years ago. so that's what this race is about. not the polls. >> look, first of all, president obama won by 7.3 last time so he doesn't have the duplicate what he did in 2008 to win. secondly, there's a way that romney can win without ohio, but it takes a very complicated formula to do that. and you know, i think on the whole, i think democrats are pretty satisfied with the position they're in right now. if you had said a year ago that enthusiasm would be equal among democrats and republicans we certainly would have taken that following the 2010 election. but it's going down to the wire here. >> what about the ground game, james? how important is that in a place like ohio and i mean, the obama people seem to think they have a much better ground game than the romney campaign. >> well, they do, and if you look a
